The theme of the weekend is Growing Along Spiritual Lines. We read in 12 step literature that we are not perfect, but we are "willing to grow" along spiritual lines. This weekend we will be with others who are willing to grow and examine practices and habits that aid spiritual growth.
Our facilitator is Sister Cathy Cahill. Back by popular demand. Sr. Cathy is a Franciscan Sister of Allegany with over 30 years of experience leading retreats for persons in 12 step programs. Sr. Cathy is trained as a substance abuse counselor and has served as director of a retreat center in Tampa, Florida for many years. She has a Bachelor of Science degree in education from St. Bonaventure University and a Master's Degree in education from Rhode Island College.
The weekend begins with supper at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, August 2nd and ends on Sunday, August 4 about noon, following a 12 -Step Eucharist. You may check in on Friday after 3:00 p.m. However, you may arrive at SECC as early as 1 p.m. on Friday. On Friday night we will gather in the lodge at 7:30 p.m. for Sr. Cathy's first session.
All rooms at the Conference Center are double occupancy (shared rooms). You may request a private room, but we can not guarantee their availability. Private rooms are not assigned until after all registrations are received and we know the total attendance. We assign private rooms on a "first requested, first issued basis; but no one will be turned away in order to provide private rooms. There are two handicap accessible rooms. Please let SECC know if you have dietary issues.
Make your checks payable to SECC with "ARM Retreat" on the memo line.
